The FCA have been busy implementing new standards expected from firms in relation to their financial promotions.

Sector specific rules have been brought in for investment management and cryptocurrencies as well as updated requirements for credit brokers.

Additionally, the FCA have moved to regulate those organisations approving financial promotions.

Clearly an area of significant change, it has also been affected by the Consumer Duty, specifically the consumer understanding outcome.

This virtual classroom seminar will make sense of the new landscape, helping you to understand the myriad of requirements and plot your route to compliance.

Examples will be given as to what constitutes good, adequate, or poor compliance supported by a range of examples.

The session is suitable for financial services professionals with responsibility for creating or reviewing financial promotions in relation to regulated products.
